ALM data strategies that mimic the principles of blockchain
Friday, November 2, 2018 by Christopher Pola
All too often, I hear from customers about a very common pain point: they do not have the data to run their business. It’s not that they lack data, but they lack trust in their data. While solving data issues can be a riddle at times, I believe this dilemma is symptomatic of antiquated and/or misappropriated application lifecycle management (ALM) systems requiring...
Machine learning, crowdsourced data, and the birth of Gengo.ai
Wednesday, October 31, 2018 by Richard Harris
The glue that holds machine learning and artificial intelligence together is data. Without the data to create complex learning algorithms from, and to create those life-like AI experiences - neither of them are worth a brass farthing.
Charly Walther, the VP of product and growth at Gengo.ai, joined Gengo from Uber, where he was a product manager in Uber’s Advan...
Blockchain IoT can work to your advantage
Friday, October 5, 2018 by Richard Harris
Why do the words Blockchain and IoT still sound terrifying to some businesses? Maybe it's because Blockchain terminology was made mainstream by Bitcoin, or perhaps it's that IoT sounds immediate security alarms.
According to IBM, using Blockchain in asset management, customs declarations, supply chain networks, commercial property leasing, and countless more ...

Elastos (ELA) announced a merged mining partnership with Bitmain Technologies. The merged mining partnership means that for miners and future users of the smart web platform, it guarantees the security of the Bitcoin network by sharing its hashpower. Merged mining allows Bitcoin (BTC) and the ELA coin to be mined simultaneously and more efficiently, and conserves energy...
A quantum blockchain can stop quantum computing from hacking it
Monday, August 13, 2018 by John Wu
We have yet to see the full promise of Blockchain play out but companies and scientists are already close to launching a technology that could theoretically break it: quantum computers.
Such machines can compute data exponentially faster than traditional computers. Earlier this year, Google began testing Bristlecone, a quantum computer chip that its creators think wi...
Use quantum computers over the cloud with ACQUA
Friday, June 15, 2018 by Richard Harris
Making a world that is "Quantum Ready" requires more researchers exploring the applications of quantum computing and potential quantum advantage, and working with real quantum computers just got easier for experts in chemistry, artificial intelligence and optimization thanks to IBM. Building on QISKit, the open source quantum information science kit for s...

Explaining what AIOps is and why it matters to developers
Monday, March 13, 2017 by Richard Harris
We recently spoke with Phil Tee, CEO of Moogsoft to learn more Algorithmic Intelligence, (the “AI” in AIOps). What is AIOps you say? It's a new category defined by Gartner research that is an evolution of what the industry previously referred to as ITOA (IT Operations and Analytics).It seems we have reached a point where data science and algorithms are being successfull...
NVIDIA releases GPU accelerator to improve AI
Friday, March 10, 2017 by Richard Harris
As innovation progresses, more and more processing is being offloaded to the cloud to do the heavy lifting. But how much cloud usage is too much for cloud providers to handle efficiently? That is the answer that many companies hope never to have to answer as they ramp up their cloud usage exponentially. That’s where NVIDIA and Microsoft look to make big changes in the w...
